Research Interests

​I have a background in clinical medicine and developed interest in Public and Occupational Health and Safety during the initial phase of my work experience at KAUST as Research support staff. I have been working at KAUST for 5 years and have learned a lot from my co-workers. At present I am a student of a research Master's program in Environmental Health and Safety which is not only adding to my knowledge but also giving me an insight into the logic of why Safety should be given priority in research laboratories and how to make operations safe complying with international regulations. I hope to continue my research and my services to KAUST in this direction.
